Comment (by mythtv@…):

 Launchd is the approved way to kick off server processes in OSX.  It
 expects, generally, to kick off processes on an "as-needed" basis.  This
 bug may well have to do with running afoul of ''launchd'' policy.
 Among the "Required Behaviors" of ''launchd'' processes is the following:

 You must not daemonize your process. This includes calling
 the daemon function, calling fork followed by exec, or calling
 fork followed by exit. If you do, launchd thinks your process
 has died. Depending on your property list key settings, launchd
 will either keep trying to relaunch your process until it gives up
 (with a “respawning too fast” error message) or will be unable to
 restart it if it really does die.



 Is there any real reason to use the ''--daemon'' flag?
